The Austin Healey 3000 is a car that has endeared itself to enthusiasts all over the world, not least for those who remember the sight and sound of this muscular British sports car roaring to spectacular success in international rallying.
The final model, the Mk III BJ8, appeared in February 1964. Complete with larger SUs, a new camshaft and rerouted exhaust with four silencers, its 148bhp provided 120mph performance and 0-60mph in just 9.5 seconds. May 1964 saw a last and notable change; a lack of rear ground clearance had been a long-time bugbear of Healey owners and this was addressed by better locating the axle by the twin radius arms rather than the Panhard rod.
This impressive Austin Healey 3000 Mark III Phase 2 has lived in the Netherlands for over 20 years and presents very well. The car is finished in desirable Ice Blue over Old English White, with a complementing dark blue interior and soft top. The look is completed with a lovely set of chrome wire wheels, additional lighting and period wooden steering wheel. Fitted with the desirable overdrive gearbox, this cherished Big Healey is ready for more summer adventures!
